Collembola feeding on plasmodia of the myxomycete Enerthenema papillatum.
On a dead pine trunk
Camera Model: NIKON D300. Exposure Time: 1/60 sec.; f/32; ISO Speed Rating: 400. Focal Length: 90.0 mm. Flash fired
Thanks Daniele, I did not see that blog piece until now. I splitted this one from the Enerthenema papillatum spotting to avoid to spot two different species in one single spotting
arlanda, seeing this in the feed reminds me that I actually featured these plasmodia of yours in the latest PN blog piece:-) http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/169...I don't think spottings for that piece were featured in the feed unfortunately.
Thanks Argy. It was actually moving around without making up its mind which one to start with.
Well done on the ID. It's a tough life for a springtail choosing which red lightbulb to eat next.
Finally identified as Pseudachorutes palmiensis, a collembola species
No problem, I have plenty of pics of the collembola and plenty of the plasmodia without the bug, so it is easy to have the two different names. Actually, the Ceratophysella one is ready
I think you should repeat the pics but different order - so we get two scientific names separated ?
OK, thanks Argy and Agustin, you are right, I will split them
Very unique set of images, beautiful!I'd split it in two spottings.
It's good enough to put twice :)
Thanks rat.tumour for your wow!
Thanks Argy, do you think I should split it in two spottings?I don know ..., I sort of like it this way
This is extraordinary Angel. I think you could do 2 spottings for it. Beautiful work.
